Highlights of the Second Day, April 22, 2016.
** A stop in Litchfield, Illinois, for our taco fix at Jack's (used to be Jack-in-the-Box). The Jack's in Litchfield is the closest one to Chicago. We are so happy they have the jumbo tacos back.
** Being very careful not to get off in East St. Louis and got across the river, but then got lost in some less-than-safe areas in St. Louis.(It is so sad that we have to have less-than-safe areas of cities for tourists.)
** Cruising Route 66 from Pacific to Sullivan.
** Had lunch at the Jack's in Sullivan, which,of course, included some more TACOS!!
** I-44 to St. Robert's and backtrack to Hooker Cut, my absolute favorite stretch of Route 66. I can hear the ghosts of 66 going through there. Had a brew at the Devil's Elbow outside with some real crazy ladies.
** Arrived at Munger-Moss and checked in. Had a short talk with the very busy, but friendly as ever, Ramona.
** Went over to Senor Pepper's on Mo-5 and enjoyed the $3 happy hour pitchers and talked with some very friendly people.
** Stopped at Applebee's on the way back to the motel.
